The VizCom 200 is a 200-mile (320 km) annual ARCA Menards Series race held at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan. The inaugural event was held on July 20, 1980 and was won by Joe Ruttman. The series has raced at least once annually at the track since 1990.

History[edit]

ARCA ran its first race at Michigan International Speedway in 1980, when two races were held. The series would not return for nearly a decade, when it was added back to the calendar in 1990, where it has remained ever since. The race has been run between June and August since its inception, with every race falling in June each year since 1991. An additional second race was conducted at the speedway on seven occasions: 1980, 1991, 1996-1997, 2001, and 2005-2006.[1]
